Smaller babies for smoking mums
Babies of mothers who smoke have a lower birth weight than those of non-smoking mothers
 
 

Faroese women who smoke tend to give birth to low-birth babies, according to the 2017 annual report by the Chief Medical Officer of the Faroe Islands.

In 2017, 78 pregnant women identified themselves as smokers at the first trimester screening. The average birth weight of these women’s babies was 3,440 grams.

For the women who did not smoke, the average birth weight was 258 grams higher, at 3,698 grams.

In 2016, these figures were 3,560g and 3,732g respectively, a difference of 172 grams.
